TICKETS for Glastonbury Festival sold out in just over half an hour — amid Rumours of very big names attending.
All 135,000 places at next year’s event were snapped up in 34 minutes, with a back-up website used to cope with heavy traffic.
Glastonbury will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year and Fleetwood Mac and Taylor Swift have been tipped to be in the line-up.
Demand far outstripped supply, as more than 2million people registered to try to attend the music festival at Somerset’s Worthy Farm.
However, ticket sales were not as fast in 2015 when they sold out in 20 minutes.
In a message to the fans, co-organiser Emily Eavis, the daughter of founder Michael Eavis, said: ‘Thank you all for your incredible, continued support.
‘Demand was higher than ever, with over 2.4million people registered. Bring on 2020!’
But fans still have a chance as there will be a ticket resale in April, plus a ‘special ballot’ for 50 pairs of tickets will be held.
